Securus Technologies has long been the major player in offering communication systems to serve the inmate population. Securus recently released a Vimeo video showcasing a father in prison orange offering advice and encouragement to his daughter about mathematics and more importantly about life. This short video tears at the heartstrings of those of us who witness a lovely little girl and her articulate and caring father in the prison jumpsuit.
Securus has made a great case for the use of their audio and video communication system as a better form of communication between those inside institutions and what is left of their family life on the other side of the prison bars. The previous need for face to face visitations has been radically changed and improved for both sides of this necessary communication and thanks to Securus without the expense of traveling great distances and being subjected to harsh conditions inside the prison facilities. Just imagine a middle-aged mother being subjected to a full body search in order to speak to her wayward child. The immature and thoughtless actions of adolescents, which only take minutes, may require decades of internment to pay for these thoughtless actions, but it often seems that the family members pay a greater price than those inside the razor wire boundaries.
Securus has been committed to helping to improve lives spent inside the walls of state and federal prisons. Their audio video system has revolutionized communication and has made it much easier for families and friends who once had to travel great distances to visit those held in prison facilities. Watching these heart-wrenching video audio interchanges between sons and daughters and their imprisoned fathers reminds us of the benefits of living a straight and narrow life and staying far away from any activities which could put our freedom at risk.
